Marvista Assistant Principal Maggie Heater has been selected as interim principal of Marvista Elementary School, as Melissa Pointer has begun her new role as director of social-emotional learning at the district’s central office.
Six individuals have applied for the school board position vacated by Bernie Dorsey. Dorsey stepped down in June because he is moving out of state.
The open position represents District 4, which geographically encompasses Marvista, North Hill, Madrona, and Bow Lake elementary schools, Chinook Middle School, and Tyee High School, as well as other educational sites. Applicants must live within the boundaries of District 4.
The School Board will appoint one of the candidates to the open position at its August 4 meeting. The successful candidate will be sworn in on August 18.
The public will have the opportunity to meet the applicants at a Meet and Greet on Thursday, July 29 at 5:00-6:30 via Zoom.
Here is a look at the 2021-22 school calendar. These dates and breaks are reflected on our website calendar. The calendar will be final after HEA members vote on it in August. At this time, we do not anticipate changes.
Please read this message from Principal Pointer shared with families on July 9.
As an extra measure of safety, we are offering free COVID-19 tests to Highline students in our summer school programs who have one or more COVID-19 symptoms and/or have been exposed to someone with a positive COVID-19 test.
Due to the weather forecast for extreme heat on Monday, all Highline summer school programs and classes are canceled for Monday, June 28. This includes programs at Puget Sound Skills Center. No meals for students will be available at any of our schools or meal pick-up locations on Monday, June 28.
After 14 years on the Highline School Board, Bernie Dorsey has resigned, as he and his wife Jill are relocating out of the area. Dorsey received accolades from school board members, Superintendent Susan Enfield and the superintendent's cabinet as his resignation was accepted by the school board.
